On my occasional mission to bring y’all some unreleased Dakeyne productions from the archives, here’s another one and a proper little belter it is too if I may say. For lovers of all things funky and housey, may I present ‘Dum Dum’ by (another conjured up pseudonym), The Psychids.     Funk’d Up! This track […]

Most of you will remember the classic M.A.R.R.S. track, ‘Pump Up The Volume – as a concept that combined original production, samples from other peoples records and DJ scratching etc. It set a precedent that others followed during that late 80s period. Those others, and very successful they were too, included S’Express, Bomb The Bass, […]

Continuing a recent theme of re-discovered, and mostly unreleased mixes and productions, here’s another for your listening delectation – and your iPods WTF?! Call me some ol’ dude advancing in years, but I honestly can’t even remember programming, recording or mixing this. But I do however recognise my own work. The track in question is […]

Recently I’ve been piling through a gargantuan pile of old DAT tapes in an attempt to archive them onto hard disc and ultimately for posting up on my blog as a reminder of some old and forgotten works. I’ve also found some ‘unreleased’ rarities, demos and DJ sets and radio mixes too. Just for the […]

Terpsichord was another re-invention for me. It was a record label, a production company, an artistic alter-ego and the beginnings of an all together darker, tougher exploration of my DJ’ing and musical persona. At the end of the 90s, as a new millennium was approaching fast, I felt the need for a studio and DJ […]

On a production level, I first used an actual computer to sequence MIDI information somewhere around 1988, if my memory serves. This may have been a Commodore 128, an ‘Amiga’ or other such clunky device (told you ‘if my memory serves‘) and the software package running was called Steinberg Pro 16, an early predecessor of […]

In the last quarter of 1993, a pioneering nightclub manager called Nodd McDonagh called me to say he’d been head-hunted to run a new venue in Dublin’s Temple Bar district, to be named, ‘The Kitchen’ – the owners of which, were U2. ‘Would you like to DJ for the opening night and see how you […]

‘Eight Zero’? It’s a club night, a concept, a retrospective musical journey around all that was actually bloody good during the 80s. I had the pleasure of hosting, DJ’ing and promoting this night back in 2005/6. Banished was the cheesy pop of the period, and welcomed with open arms was the cool ‘electronica’, the alternative […]

It was ten years ago in 1999 that I remixed Grace Jones’ seminal ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ – a track with more sexual innuendos than you could shake a stick at. This post is a quick rewind on that and also to finally make public a short but very sassy unreleased Dakeyne remix of […]

The title? Well, it’s a track from the 80′s by the FunBoy 3, but in a cheesy radio style link, why not use it for last night’s shenanigans? Chris Moyles, my friend Comedy Dave, and the rest of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show team invaded the City of Hull last night. With me living in […]
